Ron Artest press conference to address his concussion

I’m not sure what to think about this. But one thing is for sure, my Lakers need Artest on the court. So I hope he gets well soon.

We know he is definitely from the hood, but I don’t think his “wife” did this to So unless he was drunk, I have no idea what could have happened.

If it was a fight with someone, wouldn’t that have come out? I don’t know…but one thing is for sure, if he is lying, it will come out, it always does. For now, I will just go with what Ron is saying.

Shannon Brown & Ron Artest In Toni Braxton’s New Video "Yesterday" ft Trey Songz

See larger image

is getting cozy with for the filming of “Yesterday” music video. In one of the pictures, she is seen leaning against Trey’s chest. The video was filmed on October 8 in Los Angeles and is directed by Bille Woodruff. No specific premiere date is set in stone for the video.

“Yesterday” is the lead single off Toni Braxton’s upcoming studio installment “Pulse“. The track was debuted in September and becomes her first release since going on a hiatus in 2005

Well one thing is for sure, Ms. Braxton has some definite eye candy for the ladies in this new video. Trey Songz is definitely the ‘bizness’, and isn’t Shannon Brown just as cute as he wanna be?

The Enigma That Is Ron Artest

The Palace BrawlThe Palace Brawl

This is where is all began for Ron Artest. The brawl at Detroit’s Palace of Auburn Hills (which also known for it’s first ever WNBA brawl Sparks vs Shock) placed a label on Ron that he has been unable to shake some 5yrs later. Since this unfortunate incident has happened, Ron has played on two other teams, Sacramento and Houston. Now he is playing for the world champion Los Angeles Lakers, and most are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for this team to implode, simply because it has added Artest. I want everyone to take a closer look into what people and who people think Ron Artest is…then ask yourself if what you have seen, really who you think he is?

I posted the video above so that people can go back and look at what really took place on that unfortunate evening 5yrs ago. After watching it, where was the backlash for Ben Wallace, who intiated everything. Emotions truly began to run high after he took exception of that foul by Artest, which looking back was really not that hard of a foul, considering some of the things we have seen in the NBA. My goodness who remembers the clothesline McHale gave Rambis, or more recently when Raja Bell clothesline Kobe, and their was none of this type of behavior that followed. But more importantly what did Ron Artest do: he backed away, allowed the refs to do their job, and laid down on the scorers table, Ben Wallace threw a towel at him, he did nothing, fans were shouting obscenities, he did nothing, then out of no where he gets hit with a bottle and beer is thrown all over him. Understand, none of us know how we will react in these situations, we hope that we would make the right decision, but who knows. So Ron held it all in, through Ben Wallace antics, and snaps and let’s loose when he gets hit in the head with a bottle, by a fan. We all know the rest of the story. But does that incident make Ron Artest a thug? A hoodlum? An enigma?

Artest Karoke

Then their is this Ron Artest. Singing Karoke with his friends…having a ball on twitter. Interacting with the fans as only he can. He is so open about everything from his upbringing to his marriage, and subsequent divorce. He is all over the world doing rap concerts, and now he is as they he said, “hoodalizing espn” is their a greater personality in the league…maybe Shaquille O’neal, but overall the guy has been giving a bum rap.

Their are countless videos on youtube from this year since he has joined twitter, where he has given out his phone number and asked the fans to call him, and he talks to them. He gave the fans a email, that he answers questions from. I know I know u saying, it’s all just for show. I beg to differ, because one thing is for sure, he really could care less about what people think about him, if you are not in his inner circle.

Ron is simply PASSIONATE about what he does. He has been playing this game (basketball) most of his life, and you can see it in his HEAD most of the time…lol. He simply wears his heart on his sleeve. He has no problem adapting to his surroundings, it’s when people continue to remind him of where he came or who he use to be, is when the problem arise. Ron has shown since then that he is able to handle his composure in crucial times…like last season playoffs versus the Lakers, when he was elbowed by Kobe Bryant, the did not swing out on Kobe, he did however make sure that Kobe knew he wasn’t going to take that. To me that’s great playoff basketball. Yet, that outburst piled the label of “thug” on him even more.

I will end this by saying The Enigma that is Ron Artest, every sports team needs to have. Every championship basketball team that I have seen, has at least one “passionate” player on their team. It’s that person who is willing to kick up dust, make the hard foul, get a technical, trash talk, maybe even provoke the star player on the other team in order to get them out of their game. This player does whatever it takes to win. The Celtics have Kevin Garnett, The Heat has Dwayne Wade, the Bulls had Dennis Rodman, even the Nuggets have J.R. Smith, and now the Lakers have two: Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest. So where Kobe may have been the most hated Laker by opponents, enter courtside left Ron Artest to take all that pressure off of Kobe Bryant. Every opponent, no matter what they say, were praying that this duo would never happen. Now it’s here, and NBA be warned…we have found “Peat” he is wearing #37 purple and gold. Welcome to the Lakers Ron Artest.

More Lakers Media Day Coverage

Adam Morrison may not show much personality in front of the cameras but given the chance I believe he can be an offensive Spark off the bench.

LakerNation I begin this blog with a heavy heart, for one Trevor Ariza! Let me be clear from the beginning, I only wanted to see Trevor Ariza in a Lakers uniform for a long time to come, and on this 2 day of free agency we have found out that will NOT be. Trevor Ariza has just agreed in principle to a deal reportedly worth $32mil with….THE HOUSTON ROCKETS? Trevor took the full mid level exception from the Rockets and will begin his tenure as a Houston Rocket in 2009-2010 season. LakerNation it really was hard for me to just wrap my mind around this. Trevor Ariza’s agent David Lee has done a TREMENDOUS disservice to his client. He attempted to come at the Lakers in the same manner he did last year when the Lakers were looking to sign Andrew Bynum to an extension, but what he did not understand was Bynum is a rare Center with great potential, but small forwards who have been CONSISTENT for years were very much available and willing to play for the NBA Champion Lakers! So David Lee played hard ball and now Trevor is with a team, who is not sure what it’s future holds for the upcoming season…but hey at least he is paid! And to think of that he took the mid level exception, isn’t that what the Lakers offered him?Yes it was, so because the Lakers offered you what the league wide value was for you on top of putting you in the starting line-up on a championship caliber team, and gave you a chance to shine and showcase your skills, the mid level was “a slap in the face”…I don’t get it! But Trevor I am not blaming you, your stock was high this year and this is a business, but I am disappointed that you chose to take this personally, and go with Houston, who is giving you the same thing the Lakers offered you to stay! So we say goodbye to a very gifted and talented player in Trevor Ariza do well in Houston (except against us…lol)!

Hello Ron “Tru Warrior” are about to be a Los Angeles Lakers! Now I mentioned Artest as a possible replacement if Trevor decided to go elsewhere, but I never imagined we would get him at such a deal…3yrs $18mil…The Lakers just one-upped every trade done to date! In acquiring Ron Artest the Lakers lose nothing from the basketball aspect, but they do gain someone that has been labeled a “problem child”, but truthfully he has not been that way since the Indiana incident. He also is not considered a “bad teammate”. Ex-teammates of Ron, has never spoken ill of him…so that tells me that he knows how to act on the court and in the locker room, and that’s all that matters to the Champs! So I will not make this “too long” of a post: Simply welcome Ron some of us have been long awaiting your arrival, and get ready for your first NBA Championship!
